Any info on Chuseok Korean Festival at CITI FIELD?

Can't find much other than it's this weekend. 26th and 27th.
Anyone know what vendors will be there and if there is an admision fee?

Any tips on what to eat would be great as well...


thanks hounds....

  1. No admission fee. Here's a short thread from last year.

    1. I am wondering whether to go or not. I don't think I can handle two of my favorite things existing in the same place: food, and pretty Korean women. No admission is definitely enticing as well. It's gonna be hard to resist.

      1. Thanks for the answer...
        I'm still wondering about admission. is it going to be IN Citi Field or in the parking lot at Citi Field? Strange that there is no website regarding this event.

          1. On my way to the Vendys, near the Unisphere, I had a look at the festival across the tracks, where it enclosed the parking lot immediately to the west of Citi Field. From on high, it seemed small compared with last year's festival in Flushing Meadows Corona Park (and it wasn't in a park, always a more pleasant setting). About 6:45, when the Vendy winners had been announced, I walked over to take a look at the Korean event, but it was already closed for the day; Sunday's hours will be the same,11:30-6:00.

            BTW, there was a similar but much smaller event today, continuing tomorrow (Sunday, September 27, 2009), 2:00-5:00, at the Korean Methodist Church and Institute, 633 West 115th St., in Manhattan. "Fried chicken, California roll, cake, tteokbokki" and several photo-only items are promised on the flyer, which I spotted only an hour ago; good thing I sucked it up and went for an evening run.
